Superjoint Ritual released their most recent album entitled Use Once And Destroy.
It’s a rare day indeed that I get a CD from an artist that I can truthfully say does not have a bad track in the bunch. I’m more than happy to announce that?s exactly what I must say about this one. There simply is NOT a bad one in the bunch. No fillers here at all, with each song standing tall on it’s own.
Use Once And Destroy is a pleasantly varied, mix of 18 tracks that are very well written and brilliantly performed songs by these clearly superb musicians. With many of the songs displaying a lot of the kind emotion that makes for a really great listen. Seemingly drawing from what I can only imagine are their own personal experiences. At different points touching on the most real emotions of love, heartbreak, pain, failed relationships and unattainable romance. They?re all here.
I?m of the opinion that Use Once And Destroy is certainly some of this groups best work in a few years. A totally enjoyable CD and an outstanding release. What I call must have music. I give it two thumbs up because it?s a collection that even the casual Rock fan can appreciate and enjoy.
While the entire album is outstanding the truly standout tunes are track 2 – It Takes No Guts, track 9 – All Of Our Lives Will Get Tired, and track 18 – Little H.
My Bonus Pick, and the one that got Sore [ in “Stuck On REpeat”] is track 1 – Oblivious Maximus. This is a great track!
